Are you a middle or high school teacher or informal educator looking to add STEM activities or include robotics in your classroom? Join us to learn all about underwater robots or ROVs (remotely operated vehicles), and how ROVs are used to explore, research, and work in ocean waters. In this multi-day workshop, we’ll spend time aboard DISL’s research vessels and see a research ROV in operation and talk with scientists who use ROVs in their research. We’ll build a fully functional ROV from the circuit board up step by step and explore several relevant classroom activities that can get your students building, learning and developing skills.
We request that teachers attend with a partner in order to sustain the investment at your school or organization. Partner teachers need not be science teachers - robotics, STEM, math and career tech partner teachers are particularly suitable.
